3417. M32 cycle path (100)

Another Christmas 2020 piece, this time from Eman who since his reasonably recent arrival in Bristol has been making his mark about the place. This piece was painted alongside Decay, and it is interesting that both artists opt for a little character in their name.

I think that this piece is an improvement on the first one that I saw in pretty much the exact same spot. The colour progression from letter to letter is nicely worked out and the blue shadow is nicely done. The character is rather cute and brings us those Christmas wishes. An all round nice piece.

This little character, also by Eman was lurking nearby.

This is the first piece I have posted from an artist new to me who writes under the name EMAN. I note from his Instagram that he has been painting Bristol walls for a while, but I just don’t seem to have come across his work before. In the gloom of an evening a couple of weeks back I was lucky enough to meet him while painting this piece during an impromptu paint jam along the M32 cycle path.

Eman was rather pleased with his character in yellow, which he was developing and which I think might become a bit of a signature element to his work, a bit like Chuck is in Decay’s work. This piece spells out EMAN in a thin yellow strip with a shadow that gives the sense of a piece of ribbon, which is rather clever.

This is a nice piece and I already have a few more on file for posting sometime soon.
